Osanloo's Daughter-in-law Looses her Two Month Old Baby after her Torture Ordeal
Zoya Osanloo is the daughter-in-law of Mansour Osanloo, Iran's Bus Drivers Union Leader. She is not a political activist and is not in any way connected with Mansour Osanloo's union activities. She is simply married to Osanloo's son and works as an engineer. Last Wednesday, on her way to work, she was accosted by three plain clothes Iranian intelligence agents at a Metro station. She was blindfolded and handcuffed and taken to a secret detention centre. Mansour Osanloo, who is serving a five year sentence because of his union activities is due to be released at the end of this year. Zoya was punched in the face and her head was smashed into a wall several times during her interrogation ordeal. They kept telling Zoya that she should persuade Mansour Osanloo to leave the country once he is released. According to Osanloo's wife, Parvaneh, who talked about her daughter-in-law's ordeal with Fereshteh Ghazi from Roozonline, Zoya suffered broken teeth and nose bleed and is still in a shock. Most tragically however, Zoya lost her two month old baby.
